you should probably add 'free for students' to the title since not all of us are students

You don't need a school's permission to study game design. Wink

"student game developers" != "student" + "game developers"

I never heard of this engine. What games are based on it?

Note that the wording on the page has now been changed to "FREE for all students and indie game developers to use".

The source can be downloaded by anybody and there doesn't seem to be a license of any sort attached, so Shrug

It seems to mostly be a barebone version of those (usually) scammy social games with Facebook integration.

I'm reading the pdf and it is a useful overview of the design and marketing of this genre of games. A lot of the ideas should carry over to a non-text MMO too. Shame there is so much stigma attached to the Facebook login - it is a convenient way to avoid endless new logins/passwords.

Did you test the 3 day claim on new users?
